AAA Advice for Family Travelers

According to AAA, family travel is no longer limited to summer and school holiday time. In fact, 60 percent of parents say they would be willing to take their children out of school for a vacation (up from 57 percent in 2003), according to the YPB&R 2006 National Leisure Travel Monitor. The 26 regional AAA TourBook guides—covering the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean—provide information about cultural and historical sites and list AAA-inspected and AAA Diamond-rated lodgings, including those where children stay for free.

TourBook guide information is also accessible through AAA.com and the TripTik(r) travel planner.
